Back in December of last year, I put up a post listing my blogging goals for 2017. Since we are now over half way through the year, I thought it would be fun to look back on those goals and see how I’ve done with them.
1. Convert to WordPress
This was a goal that I very happily ticked off just a few days into 2017! I had originally planned to leave it a little longer but one night I just decided to go for it. And I can definitely say that I am so happy that I made the switch! My blog looks and works so much more professionally now, and I would recommend it to anybody who is thinking of making the switch. I think my proudest part of this goal is the fact I did everything myself. Sure it might have took me ages (a few full on 12 hour blog days) and I made a few mistakes along the way, but at least I can say I did it.
2. Stick to a Schedule
Another goal I have managed to complete! I decided I was going to do a Tuesday and Friday schedule and for the most part I’ve stuck to it. I skipped Easter week because I needed a break, and there was one week where I missed a post but I made up for it with an extra post the following week.
3. Start Outfit Posts
This definitely isn’t a goal I have managed to complete. I have only managed to get up one outfit post and one outfit instagram this year, but I definitely want to do more. My main issue is trying to get somebody to take the pictures, and I have yet to find a solution for this. But I do plan on using my insta stories a lot more in the future for OOTD’s.
4. Start to make some money
Back in May I finally started to make a little money from my blog and it’s something I’m very happy about! I definitely won’t be giving up my day job any time soon, but I have actually been able to cut down to 4 days a week for the most part.
5. Improve my Photography
If there is one goal I feel I have definitely achieved, it’s improving on my photography! I have put so much effort into my pictures this year and I have even posted on my instagram account every single day. I get so many comments from people telling me they like my photos and I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much this means to me!
Wow, so I’m definitely doing well with my goals, and we are only half way through the year! Here’s hoping I can keep it up for the 2nd part of the year, because I’ve really fallen back in love with my blog this year!
